Track Name: Turn Down the Light
Lets share this together
For just one night
I love everything about you now
When you turn down the light
Well it doesn’t really matter
Who is wrong and whats right
Cause I love everything about you now
When you turn down the light
__
Keepin’ my head above water
My heart pays the debt
But I’m drowning now
In a river of regret
Well I’ve been looking at myself
And its bringing me down
The night I stole from you
Follows me around town
__

For just one night
I love everything about you now
When you turn down the light

Who is wrong and whats right
Cause I love everything about you now
When you turn down the light

When I look at you
I see my desire
I’m sick of pretending
Knowing myself as a liar
I know what I want
What I want is you
But I know when I see you
We’ll say goodbye like we do

Well your lookin’ so fine
When you don’t think so
I love every little part of you
From high to low
Well the way that you smile
Makes me forget my own name
If I ever let you pass by
I’d never be the same

Track Name: Second Son
I’m disappointed that you feel that way
You’re losing out on half your life
Shut your ears to what they’re telling you
They’re not keeping you in mind
So wrapped up in what you want to be
Everything you want I see
__
You are the second son
You are the second son
__
Time has put you where you’re suppose to be
It won’t take long to understand
So much stronger then you think you are
No more stopping once you stand
I don’t think that you trust yourself
Don’t deny what you can be
__
You are the second son
You are the second son
You are the second son
You are the second son
__
Some of us are born with nothing
Most of us don’t follow what you lead
What you have is called a privilege
Share all you can with those in need
Why hold out for what in front of you
Look to the sky to see your reach
__
You are the second son
You are the second son
You are the second son
You are the second son
You are the second son
You are the second son
Track Name: City King
I only work for you
My city king

My city king my city king
__
Work me down easy
Don’t you pay me no dime
Work me down easy
Don’t you pay me no dime
Well you promised me fifty dollars
But you screw me all the time

Well I broke my back
Hauling up your stair
Well I broke my back
Hauling up your stair
While you were sipping
Sweet bourbon in an easy chair
__
I only work for you
My city king
I only work for you
My city king my city king
__
If I don’t take your job
They’re lining up around the block
If I don’t take your job
They’re lining up around the block
Well you could crush me
Just like a boulder crush a rock
Well there’s only one way
And you hold the door
Well there’s only one way
And you hold the door
Stand up to you
And you’ll knock me to the floor
__
I only work for you
My city king
I only work for you
My city king, my city king, my city king, my city king
Track Name: Fireline (Second Saw)
I wasn’t born a criminal
But I became a ward of the state
In and out of a cement cage
Behind the lock of a barb wire gate
When I saw my chance
To do more then sit in line
Push myself to be someone
And find whats really mine
__
Cause I’m Second saw on the fireline
Second saw on the fireline
Second saw on the fireline Yeah, yeah, yeah
__
I learned to trust myself
With a chainsaw in my hand
Not to kill but protect
Holding the line in the land
Got to learn what makes me tough
I carry myself just fine
My heart beats like the fire roars
Its never enough
But I know its a sign
__
Cause I’m Second saw on the fireline
Second saw on the fireline
Second saw on the fireline Yeah, yeah, yeah
__
Three AM a smokey haze
Said the flick of a cigarette started the blaze
Burning now it jumped the canyon
Burning now it jumped the road
Burning now I’m on my way
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
__

Food and water just incase
We’re surrounded by the flame
Pile into the truck tonight
What we’ll see will make training look tame
A dollar an hour makes nine
If I ever get out of here
I’m gonna make that dollar shine
__
Cause I’m Second saw on the fireline
Second saw on the fireline
Second saw on the fireline Yeah, yeah, yeah
Second saw on the fireline
Second saw on the fireline
Second saw on the fireline Yeah, yeah, yeah
Track Name: Confess To Me
Tell me the truth
Tell me what you want to hear
You’re gonna feel so much better
When you’re mind is clear
They want to chain you up forever
I’m all you got
Spin the wheel in my game
Or stay here till’ you rot
__
Things are looking grim
__
Tell me one more time
Who and what you saw
There’s an easy way
I’d like to help
But you broke the law
You did it
And I understand your motivation
Let me hear it in your words
So you can leave the station
__
Things are looking grim
But I can make it so much better
__
Confess to me
Confess to me
Confess to me
__
You’re free to go
As soon as your lips move the way I like
Say that again a little closer to the mic
Don’t call a friend, don’t call for help
I’m on your side
You may get the chance to walk
But you’ll never hide
__

Things are looking grim
But I can make it so much worse
__
Confess to me
Confess to me
Confess to me
Confess to me
Confess to me
Confess to me
Track Name: Barrelhouse Boy
Grew up hot and crowded
Brothers and sisters of his own
Chop that oak
Cook them ribs
Nothing he couldn’t do if he was shown
Ten seasons low and slow
Before he come up tall
Two parts mean, two parts tough
Fist for a mid day brawl
_
He’s a barrelhouse boy
He don’t get mad he gets mella
He’s a barrelhouse boy
Don’t you mess with that fella _
He likes to see the sunrise
After a long night awake
Never thought much of the mid-day
But he’ll get what he can take
Eats them ghost peppers
On his back porch in the dark
Face turns red, tough turns hot
He has to hide to growl and bark
_
He’s a barrelhouse boy
He don’t get mad he gets mella
He’s a barrelhouse boy
Don’t you mess with that fella
_
Always getting what he’s after
He’s got his midnight make
Blue notes hands together
Shaking like an earthquake
Holler in the field
Yelling in the barrelhouse
But when he sings them songs
Even you can hear a mouse
_
He’s a barrelhouse boy
He don’t get mad he gets mella
He’s a barrelhouse boy
Don’t you mess with that fella _
He’s a barrelhouse boy
He don’t get mad he gets mella
He’s a barrelhouse boy
Don’t you mess with that fella
Don’t you mess with that fella
Don’t you mess with that fella
Don’t you mess with that fella
Track Name: Heartbeat
Quiet in the kitchen
Stove is cooling down
The grease I ate for dinner
I’m going to wear it like a crown
Push open my window pane
Take a breath outside
The gutters over flowing
Its going to take me for a ride
Pull back from the sill
Rain drops from my hair
From my chest to my finger tips
Its got me gasping for air
_
I can feel my heartbeat
Chasing after me
Chasing after me
_
Watch the water boil in the kettle
Then you pour it over the leaves
The woman on the television
Is always crying when she grieves
Sippin bullets
As I stare down at the screen
Hoping the characters will come out and grab me
I’m getting tired of this scene
_
I can feel my heartbeat
Chasing after me
Chasing after me
I can feel my heartbeat
Chasing after me
Chasing after me
Its going to catch me
Someday I’m sure
_
People keep telling me that I’m crazy
When I look at the facts
I have to agree
But sometimes the truth seems hazy
It’s just one more step in front of me
_
Riding the big hand
All the way down through my veins
Caught between a tightening grip
And throwing down the reins
I’m now as old as the other
When he gave into the smother
And said goodbye to his mother
And all of us for good
_
I can feel my heartbeat
Chasing after me
Chasing after me
I can feel my heartbeat
Chasing after me
Chasing after me
Its going to catch me
Someday I’m sure
Track Name: I'm On My Own
I can’t begin to know
How to talk in a crowd
You work in the city where the trains run real loud
My glass is empty but my mouth is dry
Show me what you got and I’ll give it a try
All night long I can hear it in your tone
_
I’m on my own
I’m on my own
_
Tell me a story
And I’ll ask you all the right things
You’ve always wanted a dog
And a bird that sings
You dream at the top
But you work at the bottom
You don’t hold the keys
But you know whose got em
I’d call you tomorrow
But you don’t have a phone
_
I’m on my own
I’m on my own
On my own
_
I think I’ll get myself a drink
I think I’ll get myself a drink
_
Tell me again how
You’re an expert in everything I do
A beginner cook
And seasoned critic too
You don’t go out but you’re standing next to me
Thought I knew the price
But I didn’t know the fee
You can’t be told
But you can be shown
_
I’m on my own
I’m on my own
I’m on my own
I’m on my own
On my own
Track Name: Main Street
Downtown diner opens every single day
You’ll be there its the only game in town
You walk three blocks
You’ve seen all there is to see
What else were you looking for
New stop light
Down on the corner
But you don’t worry
You know all the cops in town by name
Just enough to do
Watching the seasons pass us by
Oh we love it when they hang those lights
On main street
For the holiday parade
_
Travel the road
Stop in the places
Lost in crowd
One of the faces
High on the mountain
I’ve seen you before
I’m coming home late
Please, don’t lock the door
_
Not much has changed
In forty fifty sixty years
Except the streets were much busier back then
‘Specially when the rail cars use to come through town
But that was a long, long time ago
When the big road came
It took the center from the city
And it left us
All this shell we call home
We call home
Home
_

Travel the road
Stop in the places
Lost in crowd
One of the faces
High on the mountain
I’ve seen you before
I’m coming home late
Please, don’t lock the door
_
Your baby she’s a hiker and a hunter
She’ll work hard to never let you down
At nights she walks between those old rail tracks
But not too late
She works early in the morning
The two of you think about leaving all the time
But you’ll stay
Like your mother’s, father’s, grandfathers
Before you
You
_
But you travel the road
Stop in the places
Lost in crowd
One of the faces
High on the mountain
I’ve seen you before
I’m coming home late
Please, don’t lock the door
Don’t lock the door
Track Name: In My Backyard
Walking through the canyons in the middle of the day
Search for a new place where we can play
Out since the morning with my old bud
Shirt stained brown with the mountain mud
Gonna stay out late till the sky turns dark
Hacking through the brush Gonna make out mark
_
Racing to the edge of our world
In my backyard
In my back, yard
_
Firecrackers in our pockets of the road we crawl
Blew the hell out of my sisters china doll
Tumble through the brush till we stink like sage
Tried trapping raccoons in a makeshift cage
Follow the creek till it turns to the sea
Run to the water like a
Derby
Grand
Prix
_
Racing to the edge of our world
In my backyard
In my back, yard
_
Grew up in a hurry
And we left that place
Chasing high raises in a hurried race
No more bruises on my knees or ticks in my hair
Just a visit in the winter with a cheap bus fare
Haven’t seen my friend in a year or two
But I’ll never forget the mud
Or the things we’d do
_
Racing to the edge of our world
In my backyard
In my back, yard
